A powerful collection of correspondence between soldiers and their sweethearts during World War I. From the private papers of Winston Churchill to the tender notes of an unknown Tommy in the trenches, this book brings together some of the most romantic correspondence ever written. Many of the letters collected here are eloquent declarations of love and longing; others contain wrenching accounts of fear, jealousy, and betrayal; and a number share sweet dreams of home. But in all the correspondence—whether from British, American, French, German, Russian, Australian, and Canadian troops in the height of battle, or from the heartbroken wives and sweethearts left behind—there lies a truly human portrait of love and war. A century on from the start of World War I, these letters offer an intimate glimpse into the hearts of men and women separated by conflict, and show how love can transcend even the bleakest and most devastating of realities.
